Kerala: Woman forced to consume liquor; gangraped by husband

In a shocking incident, a 25-year-old woman was allegedly forced to drink liquor by her husband and was gang-raped by four of his friends in front of their five-year-old child near Thiruvananthapuram. All of them were arrested on Friday, a day after the incident, police said. The child is suspected to have beaten up by the accused. The Kerala State Women's Commission has on its own registered a case into the rape. 

The woman told police that her husband had taken her and their two children to the beach at nearby Puthucurichy on Thursday and later to a friend's house nearby, where she was forcefully fed alcohol and sexually assaulted in front of her elder son.

"The woman was rescued by a young man who found her in an inebriated state along the road. He took her in his car to her home and then informed police about the incident," a police officer said.

The man later told some television channels that she was crying, had injuries on her face and pleaded for help.

A police officer from Kadinamkulam police station said the arrests will be recorded after verification of facts.

Police have recorded the statement of the woman, who was admitted to a government hospital and later discharged. 

The woman told television channels that the men had also inflicted burns on her body with cigarette butts.
